The Sub-Committee noted that the following documentation was attached to the report:

·        Appendix B – copy of the current premises licence

·        Appendix C – representations submitted by the Licensing Authority

·        Appendix D – representations submitted by Dyfed Powys Police

·        Appendix E  - representations made by the Public Health Services

·        Appendix F – representations submitted by other persons objecting to the application

 

The Licensing Authority representative referred to his representations, as detailed within Appendix C to the report, and advised that subsequent to the report’s publication, correspondence had been received from both the Dyfed Powys Police and the Public Health Services withdrawing their objections, following an agreement having been reached with the applicant on the imposition of revised conditions, copies of which were circulated at the meeting. Additionally, an e-mail dated 19th September, 2016 from the applicant clarifying a number of points in relation to The Square’s capacity, rear door and installation of cctv was also circulated.

 

Having regard to the agreement reached between the applicant, the Police and the Public Health Services on the revised conditions, the Licensing Authority considered it would be appropriate for those conditions to be applied to the new licence, should the Sub-Committee be minded to grant the variation application.

 

All parties present were afforded the opportunity of questioning the Licensing Authority’s representative on his submission.

 

A representation was received from an objector on behalf of local residents living in the vicinity of The Square regarding the current noise emanating from the premises and to the potential impact the granting of the variation for one additional hour’s opening could have on their amenity. A Concern was also expressed on whether the premises was becoming a night club, especially having regard to the fact a previous (planning) application in the area for a night club had not been granted. In conclusion, the Sub-Committee was advised that most other premises within the area closed at 1.00 a.m.

 

All parties present were afforded the opportunity of questioning the objector on his submission.

 

A representation was received from the applicant in support of his application. He referred to concerns expressed regarding the rear door and confirmed that the majority of customers vacated the premises via the front door. With regard to concerns of noise, he confirmed that he had not received any complaints from either the Council or the Police, and that, possibly,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 2.
